QuietOn 3 review | TechRadar


30-second review

Loud noises keeping you awake at night? The QuietOn 3 could be the perfect solution. A successor to the original QuietOn Sleep, the QuietOn 3 sleep earplugs use the same noise-cancelling tech you’d find in a pair of true wireless headphones to mask the annoying ambient sounds that can stop you falling (and staying) asleep.

They don’t stream music or podcasts from your phone, and unlike the Bose Sleepbuds II or Amazfit Zenbuds, there are no relaxing sounds to help you drift off at night. The QuietOn 3 sleep earplugs are simply about blocking out unwanted noises so you can fall asleep naturally.

So why invest in these rather than simply picking up a pair of regular foam or silicone earplugs? The answer isn’t just what the QuietOn 3 block, but also what they allow through. The active noise cancelling masks low-frequency sound (such as your partner snoring or nearby traffic), but allows you to hear higher frequency sounds. That means you can still hold a conversation, and you’ll be able to hear your alarm clock in the morning.

They’re certainly not cheap, though. If you have trouble getting to sleep at night and are on a tighter budget, it’s worth checking out a white noise machine like the Homedics Deep Sleep Mini instead. It doesn’t work in the same way, and may not be quite as effective, but costs about a quarter of the price.
